We鈥檝e been following all the rumors leading up to next week鈥檚 Apple event for well over a year now. So, suffice it to say, we鈥檙e pretty excited about everything that Apple will be revealing聽鈥 especially the new iPhones. However, rumors are already swirling about the iPhones Apple is expected to release next year, which got us thinking: Should we even be that excited for the big reveal next week? Well, yes鈥 and no. Here鈥檚 why:

Yes!聽If the rumors are true, there is going to be a ton more storage available on the iPhone 7. Other rumored features include a dual-lens camera, longer battery life, complete removal of the headphone jack, super fast charging capabilities and the option of聽three different sizes.聽The phone will also probably come in five colors, including brand-new Glossy Black.

No!聽The 10th anniversary iPhone is rumored to be BIG. Some predict that next year鈥檚 iPhone will have iris scanning to unlock your phone. The 鈥渋Phone 8鈥 could also have wireless charging and a wraparound, larger screen. Apple may even choose to completely remove the home button in favor of a touch-sensitive casing.

Basically: If you like the phone you鈥檝e got now but just want it to do a聽bit聽more, this could be your year. Otherwise, the big new innovations will probably take another year to arrive.聽But, either way, we won鈥檛 know exactly whether or not it鈥檚 prudent to upgrade until Apple unveils its new device next week. Stay tuned, and we鈥檒l be sure to let you know our final consensus.

Will you wait another year for a new iPhone? Let us know @BritandCo!
